RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much quicker than a disk drive, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to look through your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, since the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change according to what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server plans include a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even when you use a small fraction of the system resources which your package includes, we shall never allot the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical server. Because we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to secure the adequate functioning of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the active one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. In this way, we ensure that your Internet sites will perform adequately all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server we offer you is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and any software you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are tested before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly functioning machine that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
